An Effective Approach to Cyber Security Management

Online threats have become an issue for all kinds of websites and applications. Although the risks run higher for fintech and ecommerce businesses, almost every other industry faces the wrath of digital threats. To mitigate the cybersecurity risks effectively, we have created a simple seven-step approach compatible with all kinds of digital websites and applications.

7 Easy Steps to Manage Cyber Security

Step 1: Embed a Risk Management Regime

You need to identify and implement an appropriate risk management regime compatible with the business’s Board and senior managers. You should implement the risk management scheme for all employees, including the contractors and suppliers of your business organization.

Step 2: Secure the Configurations

You need to eliminate unnecessary system functionality, as hackers can use it to enter the system. Also, identify and fix vulnerabilities with patching. Such files are undesirable to keep as they add bulk to the memory, suffer from zero updates, and are forgotten from security-strengthening protocols.

Step 3: Focus on the Network Security

Don’t forget: Network security is essential and must be kept at the prime focus of your cyber security scheme. Develop simple policies which are culturally appropriate. Every office, whether big or small, browses through several websites and uses multiple devices, making it impractical to have fixed network boundaries. So, the key here is to focus on where the data is stored and processed and securing it with high standards.

Step 4: Leverage User Roles & Permission

Providing every other user with complete authority over your website or application is undesirable. Instead, define roles and permission to secure the network against thefts and hacks. Even in case of an attack, the hacker will gain access to only a part of the code, which makes the process highly profitable.

Step 5: Educate Your Business Staff

There are tons of free tutorials available online that educate people about the possible security risks in the online world. Leverage them or organize dedicated programs to educate your employees about common cyber attacks and how to tackle them.

Step 6: Leverage Anti-Malware Policies

Malware refers to malicious attacks that hamper the system’s security and performance. However, developing anti-malware policies dedicatedly to your business industry provides the necessary protection against malware attacks.

Step 7: Use Monitoring on a Regular Note  

Monitoring provides insights into the judicious use of enterprise systems and assets. Moreover, monitoring plays a pivotal role during legal battles that run for years. Thus never neglect to monitor your systems.
